St. Luke’s Health Network, Inc. v. Lancaster General Hospital

The 3rd Circuit reviewed jurisdiction in civil RICO actions in St. Luke’s Health Network, Inc. v. Lancaster General Hospital. The court held that the plaintiffs stated a claim on which relief could be granted because they alleged that the defendants misrepresented the amount of funds they were due under Pennsylvania’s Hospital Extraordinary Expense Program, thereby decreasing the pool of funds in the program from which the plaintiffs had a valid claim to.
